Tom Cruise and Germany: The News Media gets it wrong again

Too often these days, the news media seems incapable of printing the truth. The recent frenzy over Germany banning Tom Cruise from filming at German military sites is a perfect example of that. In fact, there is no such ban!

The initial feeding frenzy was very noisy, with "reputable" news sources such as Reuters spewing forth authoritative pronouncements like, "Germany has barred the makers of a movie about a plot to kill Adolf Hitler from filming at German military sites because its star Tom Cruise is a Scientologist, the Defense Ministry said on Monday."

Time magazine even had the bad taste to print an article entitled "Why Germany Hates Tom Cruise". In the article they quote an anti-religious extremist, Ursula Caberta, who has a history of corruption which includes accepting bribes to attack minority religions. Wow, the Time reporter really did his homework before putting finger to keyboard.

And now, big surprise! We find that the German Defense Ministry never said any such thing. The very same "authoritative" source, Reuters, now has this headline "Germany now would welcome Cruise production". And we discover that the source of all this nonsense was a posting on the web site of a right-wing German politician. Does the press ever check their sources? Did anyone bother to call the German Ministry of Defense to verify the claim before printing lurid headlines about controversy, conflict and hatred? I suppose we mustn't let mere facts get in the way of a good story.

Will Reuters or Time apologize for lying to the public? I very much doubt it. They just don't have time to do the minor stuff like checking facts or apologizing for errors. They have new headlines to produce, they have to keep the public's attention so they can make a profit and keep the shareholders happy and if the truth doesn't make a couple extra bucks then forget it!

I want to acknowledge that there are journalists who care about facts. Unlike the Time Magazines and Reuters of this world, I don't want to make my article into a generality of "all journalists". There are journalists around who care. Unfortunately, it seems they are in the minority.

Still My Favorite

Tom Cruise is still my favorite. One thing I love about him as an entertainment is the quality of his movies. There are a few stars you can always trust to pick a great script, work with a terrific team and come off with a film that was well worth seeing. He's one. I'm very much looking forward to seeing his new film, "Valkyrie."

And, by the way, despite the reaction to the film that's been carried in the press, the fact is that Scientology is thriving in Germany. The new Church of Scientology of Berlin, that opened earlier this year, is a model Scientology church and people are interested, looking into it, and loving what they find out.

A culture is only as great as its dreams, and its dreams are dreamed by artists. — Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard

The Critics Love Travolta

The movie critic for the London Daily Mail raves about John Travolta's performance in his next movie, "Hairspray."

Here is one quote:

The film - and Travolta himself - is certainly not lacking in energy. As Nikki Blonsky says: "This was the job of a lifetime and I got to have John Travolta as my mum. Life doesn't get much better than that."

The review and an interview with John are here:

John Travolta is 'all woman' in remake of classic film Hairspray

Super Sexy Payal Rohatgi

Payal rohatgi's is another bollywood actress whose claim to fame has been shedding clothes. As with others this strategy never works in the long run. She started off by being Miss Tourism, 2001(Again looks like beauty queen competitions should be rechristened as Bollywood entry competitions.) She happens to be a computer engineer and took up modelling after college.
Finally made entry into bollywood with a B grade film(or was it A grade?) Tauba Tauba.

Below are three wallpapers from the same movie. Payal looks real hot....

Incidentally the movie is being remade now(a sequel to that) and Payal is not going to star in it. The director has claimed to have replaced her with someone hotter in "Sadhika". See below and decide yourself who is hotter...
Still from phir tauba tauba, Sadhika looking very sexy

Hot Neha Dhupia Wallpapers

Continuing with the post on Neha Dhupia here, here are some more hot photos and wallpapers of her. As i had mentioned, Neha has realized, little late i suppose, that plain sex won't take you far in any show business.

Thats reflected in her taking more de-glam roles in Delhii Heights for example. However its not as if she has given up on her staple roles. Eg in the recently released film Ek Chalis Ki Last Local she again took up the role of a prostitute. As was expected the movie bombed at the box office.

Ahh well, coming back to the wallpapers, she sure has nice feet and legs, atleast judging from the first wallpaper.

Women in Traditional Indian dresses

No dress brings out the beauty of women as much as traditional Indian dresses of Sarre and Salwar Kameez. Everyone seems to look nice in western dresses, however, the best judge of beauty is when a girl wears the Indian dresses and really one who looks beautifu in that is the real beauty.
Have a look at this model in Saree. Imo she looks superb all thanks to the wonderful Indian Dress.

Or even a model in Salwar.

I know this is a bare feet blog, but do expect some updates of models in these dresses. Might not be bare feet, but they will be beautiful. I hope you enjoy the beauty show :) Tradional Wear

Minissha Lamba

One of the cutest actresses in bollywood today, Minissha Lamba was born in a Sikh family in New Delhi. She went into modelling and modelled for cadbury. Immediately afterwards she came into bollywood with the movie yahan and her acting was acclaimed.

She has now quite a few movies to her credit. This 22 year old sure has a long way to go in bollywood....

Here are some of her cutest high quality wallpapers showing her exquisite legs and feet.
